She Runs

Can You See

She Runs

 Run away into reality to escape reality itself and its terrors

Barefeet slender ankles stumble over sharp rocks broken by the elements

Her body remembers its nimbleness through the pain as her feet meet the sand

Once porcelain was the mirror of her skin

Now it mirrors the wages of war

White stained with crimson stripes orbs of deep purple apear matching the stones that made them

No frightened cry escapes her lips but the blood pounding through her veins is screaming in a voice all its own

Her paths many her escapes only two

To exstend in a final and glorious flight or to hold to a futile hope

The path leading away rolls out before her slient secretive promising nothing

Like a doe being persued she darts in her mad flight seeking escape

Her eyes searching wide with terror

The elements serene as she stands in their midst.

Such tension, such looming, such a terrified feeling this imparts about the running girl... thank you for sharing.

this scares me bc it makes me think of the cutters out there.... "White stained with crimson stripes orbs of deep purple apear matching the stones that made them"

i know its done to escape emotional pain, but its a tough self destruction to stop...
